After starting its expansion journey in late 2021 and getting the new equipment on site in April this year, Mountain Culture Beer Co shared in August that “all systems are go” with its fully automated brewhouse. The announcement comes after the brewery successfully brewed its first beer batch using the new kit in late July.
Grafton Brewing Co is set to open its heritage brewery “soon.” The venue will offer food and drinks, and the site features 12 brewing tanks with the capacity to produce 3,500 litres of beer weekly.
Breakwall Brewing is set to open later in 2023 with a 10HL system. According to a job advertisement for a Production Manager, the brewery will offer a range of “core, seasonal and one-off products to Narooma and the local communities which surround this south coast town.”
The owners of the Hills Marketplace retail complex in the Northern Sydney suburb of Terry Hills have submitted a development application to Northern Beaches Council. According to the documents, they are seeking to construct two buildings, with one to house a garden centre and rural supplies outlet and the other to be made into a restaurant. The eatery would double as a microbrewery, with the inclusion of “a small area for ancillary brewing equipment” allowing the owners to brew beverages at the venue for on-site purchase and consumption and providing “ambience in the restaurant.” Planning documents specify that the business “will not produce products greater than 30 tonnes per day, or 10,000 tonnes per year.”
